Divine wisdom

Proverbs 4:7

Divine wisdom only deserves the name of wisdom.

1. Because it converseth in the highest things.
2. Because it seeks to approve itself to God.
3. Because it is both the mother and guide, or chariot-driver, of all virtue, and guides it aright.
4. It is the greatest gift God ever gave man, for it directs him to Jesus Christ, the wisdom of the Father, without whom is no salvation, and therefore no true nor lasting gain by any other wisdom. Use: To reprove such as boast much of human sciences, but make no account of heavenly wisdom.
